YANBU. At all.

Of course it's fine. Unless she has some SN or other issues you haven't told us about.

Do it. At 11yo my dd was left all day in school holidays when I was at work.

That's absolutely fine - not sure why you'd even have to ask

11 years and 9 months ? fgrin

Yes, she'll be fine I'd have thought, unless she has form for acting up.

My ten year old would be fine with that.

A lot of secondary school kids are left at home alone until their parents get home from work. Unless she can be silly I don't know why you'd question it?

I used to babysit my younger brother and sister at that age quite regularly so I wouldn't have thought leaving her alone for a little while would be an issue? blush or maybe it is? I'd say it's fine though!

yes that's fine

Goodness me, of course its fine.

As long as she is happy it is fine.

If she was well I would say no problem at all but the fact that she is chesty would worry me.

When my son was 10 I was leaving him home for 15 mins whilst I did the school run,(he had a cold and a cough) as I was about to leave he came down struggling to breathe and had to be rushed to hospital.

Because of that I am less likely to leave them now if they are sick - and 2 hours is quite a while. Is there not a neighbour who could stick their head in to have a quick check on her while you are out?

Sorry missed the bit about her not knowing the neighbours...

I don't see a problem - go
